    ISU Wrestlers Take Down SDSU 43-3 In Jackson's Debut

    http://www.cyclones.com/ViewArticle....B_OEM_ID=10700
    AMES, Iowa ? The No. 2 Iowa State wrestling team was firing on all cylinders Thursday night in Hilton Coliseum. ISU handled South Dakota State 43-3 for the first dual win of Cyclone head coach Kevin Jackson?s career.

    ISU made an impact with its offense in front of a home crowd of 2,528. The Cyclones recorded 29 takedowns to South Dakota State?s four. ISU also counted heavily on back points in the contest, scoring six three-point nearfalls and seven two-point nearfalls.

    ?We came in as the more heralded team and we needed to wrestle like it,? Jackson said. ?We have a lot of things to learn and only a couple of guys have really taken over at their weight class. The rest will be determined by how we wrestle at the Harold Nichols meet this weekend and then at Omaha.?

    Making the first dual start of his career at 184 pounds, senior Joe Curran kicked off the 2009-10 Cyclone wrestling campaign in impressive fashion. The Elk Point, S.D. native scored a technical fall over South Dakota State?s David Michaud by a score of 17-2 (5:52). Curran notched five takedowns in the match.

    ?Joe has been making the most connections in training and that is why he was out there tonight,? Jackson said. ?He and Jerome Ward have a battle going and both have done a good job. Joe went out tonight and went after his man from the start. That is what we are looking for this season.?

    Two Iowa Staters had pins on their mind Thursday night. Heavyweight David Zabriskie struck first for the Cyclones with a 4:17 stick of SDSU?s Jeremy Swier. The fifth-ranked senior had built a 14-3 lead before recording the fall.

    Two-time All-American junior Jon Reader added six team points to the Cyclone effort with his pin of the Jacks' Weston Blasius at 165 pounds. Reader notched the fall in the first period in 1:42.

    ?The matches are the fun part,? Reader said. ?We have a veteran team and all of us were here this summer training. It was great to get out and wrestle somebody outside of the wrestling room.?

    Senior Cyclone Duke Burk proved too much to handle for South Dakota State?s Joe Rasmussen at 174 pounds. Burk ran the first period score to 14-1 before finishing off his Jackrabbit opponent with a takedown 21 seconds into the second period for the technical fall, 16-1 (3:21).

    No. 1-ranked 197-pounder Jake Varner started off his senior campaign with bonus points over 11th-ranked Tyler Sorenson of SDSU. In the premier match of the night, ISU?s Varner controlled the bout with a 13-4 major decision.

    Second-ranked Cyclone 141-pounder Nick Gallick handled his SDSU opponent, Dustin Walraven, by major decision, 14-2. Fellow ISU senior Mitch Mueller followed with a strong 12-5 decision of the Jackrabbits? Nick Hagar.

    The son of former Cyclone three-time NCAA champion Nate Carr scored bonus points for ISU. Nate Carr, Jr. notched a major decision over Nick Flynn of South Dakota State by a score of 9-1.

    Senior Iowa Stater Nick Fanthorpe picked up a win by forfeit at 133 pounds.

    Making the first start of his Cyclone career, true freshman Dallas Collier of Aiea, Hawai?i was dropped by SDSU?s Aaron Pickrel by decision, 9-3.

    ISU hits the mat Saturday for the Harold Nichols/Cyclone Open at the Lied Recreation Center. Action begins at 10 a.m.

    Without McCool Des Moines Register coverage is going to suffer.

    Here is an example of the effort by the register

    Wrestling: Cyclones aggressive in season opener

    Twitter Ames, Ia. - Iowa State wrestling coach Kevin Jackson stressed the importance of fast, aggressive starts as a key to team success.

    So far, so good.

    The preseason No. 2 Cyclones took commanding first period leads in all but two bouts Thursday, easily dispatching South Dakota State 43-3 in their season opener - and Jackson's college coaching debut - before an announced crowd of 2,528 at Hilton Coliseum.

    "All we're asking them to do is go out and do the things they're trained to do, and that's go out there and compete and wrestle," said Jackson, who saw two of his athletes - David Zabriskie at heavyweight and Jon Reader at 165 - win by fall. "And wrestling includes shooting, attacking, countering and scoring points. So, yeah, that's exactly what I'm talking about."




    The Cyclones were happy to oblige after long months of training and wrestling each other.

    "This is the fun part," said Reader, an all-American who pinned the Jackrabbits' Weston Blasius at 1:42 in the first period. "This is what I've been looking forward to since the NCAAs finished last year."

    Zabriskie, also an all-American, scored his pin at 4:17 in the second period.

    "You get to go out there and show all that you've learned, the skills you've picked up," Zabriskie said. "So this is the fun part, like Jon said. You get to go out there and put your hands on someone you don't know. You're not in the practice room anymore so you just go out there and let everything go."

    Jackson, though pleased with the results, would have liked to see Nate Carr Jr. - who eventually won by major decision - start better than 0-0 after the first three minutes.

    "Me and Nate Carr are going to have to have a conversation: tonight, tomorrow and as long as it takes to sink in," Jackson said. He's too skilled an athlete to go 0-0 in the first period - as you could see in the second and third periods, the things he was able to do."

    Joe Curran (184), Nick Gallick (141), Mitch Mueller (149) and Duke Burk also lodged dominating wins.

    Nick Fanthorpe, who has been hampered by a hamstring injury, won by forfeit at 133.

    Jake Varner, the defending NCAA champ at 197, also impressed Jackson with his 13-4 triumph.

    "He's almost in a no-win situation," Jackson said, adding that Varner wrestled at 211 all summer. "The (South Dakota State) kid was tough and he still beat him by (nine) and realistically, Jake made one mistake. He gave up the reversal and that's what happens when you're trying to pin a guy."

    Iowa State next wrestles in Saturday's Harold Nichols/Cyclone Open at Ames.

    "I think there's some things we can gain," Jackson said. "We do have to get better at turning and pinning, as we have to get better in other areas."

    The results
    184-Joe Curran, Iowa State, won by tech. fall over David Michaud (5:52).
    197-Tanner Varner, Iowa State, won by major decision over Tyler Sorenson.
    Hwt-David Zabriskie, Iowa State, pinned Jeremy Swier, 4:17 second period.

    125-Aaron Pickrel, South Dakota State, dec. Dallas Collier, 9-3.
    133-Nick Fanthorpe, Iowa State, won by forfeit.
    141-Nick Gallick, Iowa State, won by major decision over Dustin Walraven, 14-2.
    149-Mitch Mueller, Iowa State, dec. Nick Hagar, 12-5.
    157-Nate Carr Jr., Iowa State, won by major decision over Nick Flynn, 9-1.
    165-Jon Reader, Iowa State, pinned Weston Blasius, 1:42 first period.

    174-Dallas Burk, Iowa State, won by tech. fall over Joe Rasmussen, 16-1 (3:21).

    133-Nick Fanthorpe, Iowa State, won by forfeit.
    Word to the wise...

    Do your own research!

    October 29th Wiltz sent me a PM stating that Fanthorpe would be out until MIDLANDS, (Dec 29th-30th).

    So this week I didn't put him on my roster but put 197 Patrick Bond of Illinois instead who lost to a RS Fr from Missouri.

    Now it might have been honest advice from a big ISU fan but it cost me 6 points.

    If he were in Gold's league I think I would be PO-ed but since he's not I just have to laugh & chalk it up to "experience" which is always something we never willingly invite...

    or

    Did someone pay him to tell me that...? ;-)

    You sent me a PM regarding Fanthorpe. I only relayed the information that I had.

    Everything out there including most of the ISU guys said he was out until after the Iowa dual and wouldn't return until "Around the Midlands".


    That was the information that has been out there since August.

    Only until a day or two ago were guys even talking about him being "maybe" ready for the Iowa Dual which is Not until Dec 6th.

    Here's a tip for you. I answered your question with every bit of info I had. BTW I am not an ISU fan.


    Start Fanthorpe to your hearts content, I don't care one way or another.

    You're right I sent you the PM but it was off a post I saw you made & you answered.

    My point was more that it was a lesson for me to follow up & do my own research. It wasn't to try & lessen you or your data, sorry.

    A straw man argument is an informal fallacy based on misrepresentation of an opponent's position. A straw man argument can be a successful rhetorical technique (that is, it may succeed in persuading people) but it carries little or no real evidential weight, because the opponent's actual argument has not been refuted.
